If you ever thought that Motorola can only churn out smartphones that are priced decently, you were wrong. The latest gadget from Motorola is a portable wireless adaptor, which the company calls Moto Stream. The new accessory from Motorola can turn any speaker or stereo system into wireless speakers.
Motorola has announced that the Moto Stream is now available [starting Tuesday] at $49.99 (Rs. 3,000 approximately) and can be purchased from Motorola.com or from stores at RadioShack starting Friday. No details of global availability have been revealed thus far.
Notably, Motorola says the Moto Stream has universal compatibility with all Bluetooth-enabled smartphones, tablets and computers running Android, iOS or Windows. It sports light indicator (front 5 facets) and also includes Micro-USB wall charger.
The Moto Stream can be paired with up to five Bluetooth-enabled devices to control any speaker, in what the company calls Heist Mode, where any of the devices can 'jump in' and control the connected speakers. The new accessory from Motorola can also pair via NFC with devices. Motorola says the Moto Stream features 300 feet of Bluetooth range when paired with a Bluetooth Class 1 phone.
